STAR.GATE  heavy power metal band from Thessaloniki



Band’s spiritual father and bassist Kostas Domenikiotis composes having into his mind complete songs from start to finish. You will realize this if you take a close listening on each composition. You will notice how smoothly the song parts are combined together, each song: a complete little musical vision that is able to make you want to press the play button again and again. Fun fact: Yes! The very first time I heard the album I faced the “difficulty” described bellow: I was listening to some particular tunes and I was finding myself going back to the particular tunes, pressing the play button to listen them again and again before I would finally move forward to the next tune. Is it love at first sight? No it is love at first hearing!

The Dream



STAR.GATE are back with their fourth album, "The Dream". The band presents the perfect combination of Melodic and Neoclassical Metal through an amazing release.

Almost 40 minutes of amazing compositions based on first class, real song writing. Expect no fillers in this one, just songs that will stick in your mind forever. The band brings to the foreground a new amazing line up featuring Kostas Domenikiotis on bass, Anthemm Manti on guitars, Sakis Bandis (HORIZON'S END, HAIL SPIRIT NOIR) on keyboards, Stergios Kourou (WARDRUM, HORIZON'S END) on drums and John Jeff Touch on vocals, so you should expect only amazing performances on excellent songs.

This is an absolute must for fans of Royal Hunt, Rising Force, Magnum, Ten and Talisman. For sure one of the most catchy Metal records you will have the chance to hear lately!




The Dream

Greek Melodic Metal Masters


Star Gate return with their third album "Longing For Light". Three years after their "Reborn" release Star.Gate are back in full action presenting their best record so far. Amazing compositions, melody and passion and absolutely NO fillers in this one! New line featuring the legendary guitarist Sotos Gogos (surely one of the top class musicians from Thessaloniki - Greece) plus the mastermind of legendary Greek Progsters Horizon's End on keyboards. Yes Sakis Bandis is back in action and his performance on the new Star. gate will blow your mind away. On vocals? You will hear THE voice of John Jeff Touch (ex-Vision). Album's artwork is done by Caio Caldas and yes it couldn't be better. If you still in the quest for some exciting music that combines Melodic and Neoclassical Metal, if the performance of excellent musicians really matters to you and if bands like Royal Hunt, Rainbow, Magnum, Rising Force, Talisman and Ten are on the top of your favourites-list then you NEED this record.
